Women Are Smashing The Glass Ceiling In The Retail Industry.

According to a recently completed study by Plummer & Associates, the Retail Executive Search Firm and Startup Consultant, women are breaking through the ‘glass ceiling’ by becoming CEOs in the retail industry at a greater pace than in all other industries listed on the Fortune 500. At the end of 2013, there were 8 female CEO’s in the top 100 retailers (8/100 = 8%) as compared to 23 female CEOs in the Fortune 500 (23/500=4.6%). Plummer & Associates expects this trend to continue as more female executives are rising through the ranks in retail.
